A new dimension in sound with Dolby Atmos and DTS:X

Dolby Atmos uses ceiling or upwards firing speakers to produce a multi-dimensional, immersive sound that's a match for the finest cinemas. DTS:X literally pushes the boundaries of what you can expect from home cinema. It renders images in three dimensions that conventional processing can't match. It also easily adapts with your existing speaker configuration.

Optimised for 4K UHD and HDR
The STRDN1080 features flexible HDMI connectivity on all six inputs and both outputs. It supports HDCP 2.2 and HDR which means you can play UHD Blu-ray discs and stream UltraHD video in the highest quality. It's also equipped with 4K upscaling, giving you the most detailed picture on your 4K TV from all sources. The HDMI sockets allow 4K pass-through, for hassle free switching and viewing without the receiver needing to be turned on.

Powerful, enveloping sound
When it comes to power, the latest STR-DN1080 is as impressive as ever. The Sony is capable of outputting 100W per channel at 6 ohms, allowing great flexibility in your choice of speakers and room size. The Sony STRDN1080 uses a solid frame and beam chassis for vibration resistance and the lowest sound distortion possible. It also uses specially selected components, fitted with ES grade solder, for class-leading sound quality.

Bi-amp for superior sound
This 7.2 Sony receiver is also able to be used in bi-amp mode. With the channels switched to 5.1, bi-amping gives separate amplification to your front speakers' bass and treble units (bi-wirable front speakers required). The end result gives tighter control and a wider, more dynamic sound - both in stereo and surround modes.

High-Resolution audio compatible
As well as offering room-shaking power, the Sony STRDN1080 is also compatible with High-Resolution Audio. This offers a sound that's far more natural sounding than standard audio. The STR-DN1080 supports DSD 5.6MHz decoding via USB and network connections.

Google Chromecast built-in
Chromecast lets you stream music, podcasts and audio apps, including Google Play, at the touch of a button. Having it built-in saves the battery life on your phone as the phone's Bluetooth transmission system isn't used for this purpose. Being able to stream straight from the cloud also gives the best audio quality.

Bring your music together with Sony SongPal
Download SongPal for your smartphone or tablet and take control of your music collection. Simply connect over Bluetooth or Wi-Fi and you'll have seamless access to all your favourite tracks, whether they're stored on your PC, server, or online music service. The app can also be used to customise sound settings to ensure great, balanced audio, and control multi-room listening.

Wi-Fi, Bluetooth with NFC and Apple AirPlay making streaming a breeze
With Ethernet and Wi-Fi built-in along with support for Apple's popular AirPlay and NFC Bluetooth the Sony covers all networking bases. NFC via Bluetooth lets you effortlessly sync compatible portable devices with a simple swipe of the unit next to the special remote. With AirPlay you can stream music from your iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch or iTunes along with compatible music apps like Spotify, straight to the receiver.

At home with the most sophisticated systems and TVs, the Sony STR-DN1080 is at the hub of home cinema magic.

SONY STRDN1080 is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just Stunning I upgraded from a older Yamaha award winner. I only have 5 speakers. my fronts and center are my pride and joy with my rears flagging with age. didnt think i would be blown away, but i was wrong. My experienve with AV amps in the past has always been shrowded by setting up and faffing with settings to get the sweet spot on every different thing i played, Not with this. I went through the very simple setup. I even get to use the 2 spare amps to BI-AMP my front two speakers (nice touch sony). It then gives you options on how you would like it to sound 7 channel etc, with various layouts. Then asks what tone rears use. (I picked front as refrence). Im not an audiophile loon so cant describe the sound correctly. But it is leaps and bounds infront of what i had. Yamaha's neo 6 has nothing on the neaural x feature here. The balance on all channels is perfect with the best imaging ive ever heard in my room. Way more punch and clarity. Richersounds awesome service as always. Thank you.
